Omnipod DASH® System, helping your patients simplify life.
Provide Freedom with Pod Therapy
The launch of the Omnipod DASH® Insulin Management System provides a new tubeless option to Australians living with diabetes.
Pod Therapy is a simple, effective alternative to both MDI and tubed pumps for your patients with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. One small, tubeless, wearable, and waterproof* Pod can provide up to 72 hours of continuous insulin delivery.
Two simple parts:
The Bluetooth® wireless technology-enabled Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) controls all Pod functions and is programmed based on your patients’ unique needs. With an intuitive touchscreen, the PDM can be programmed with zero basal and fractional I:C ratios for insulin sensitive patients
Intuitive Omnipod DASH® Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) is easy to learn and fast to teach.
Pod Site Tracker
The Pod site tracker feature allows your patients to keep a log of their most recent Pod sites.
Bluetooth Wireless Technology
With the Omnipod DASH® PDM, your patients can conveniently and discretely communicate* with the Pod, adjusting insulin doses based on activity level.
*At start-up, the Pod and Personal Diabetes Manager must be adjacent and touching. During normal operation, the Personal Diabetes Manager must be within 1.5 metres of the Pod.
Quick access to your patient’s data when uploaded into Glooko® Data Management System.
The Pod is small, lightweight and is waterproof* and can be worn discreetly under clothing meaning more freedom for your patient. Worn almost anywhere that insulin would usually be injected, the small, flexible cannula inserts automatically at the touch of a button, beginning personalised insulin delivery.
No visible needles
No need for patients to touch or see the insertion needle with the auto-cannula insertion feature.
Replacing multiple daily insulin injections
The Omnipod DASH® Insulin Management System may simplify the burden of multiple daily insulin injections (MDI).
The Omnipod DASH® System provides up to 3-day non-stop** insulin delivery - no need to disconnect or disrupt insulin delivery.
**Ref : Zisser HC. Quantifying the impact of a short interval interruption of insulin-pump infusion sets on glycemic excursions. Diabetes Care. 2008;31:238-239. This study was completed on a prior generation of the Omnipod® Insulin Management System.
No need to disconnect for water activities, the Pod can be worn in the shower, in the ocean, or running in the rain. Just keep the PDM dry.
*The Pod has an IP28 rating for up to 7.6 feet for 60 minutes. The PDM is not waterproof.
Step 1. Fill The Pod.
Fill the Pod with insulin (from 85 to 200 units of rapid-acting U-100 insulin, e.g. NovoRapid, Humalog, Fiasp or Apidra). The Pod primes itself and performs a series of safety checks.
Step 2. Appy The Pod.
Apply Pod to the prepared infusion site and run finger around the adhesive to ensure application.
Step 3. Press Start On PDM.
Press ‘Start’ to activate the automated insertion of the soft cannula and begin insulin delivery.
